Climate Smart Farming

Farmers are in a unique position to be part of the solution to a warming planet. Sustainable farming practices can reduce emissions through improved soil health, efficient land use and in sequestering carbon from the atmosphere.  Farming practices that avoid releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as well as those that sequester carbon can help address climate change. 

What impacts do we aim for?

How do we achieve these impacts?

We are helping farmers tackle the most pressing climate challenges with the right combination of technologies.  Our technologies include nitrogen management products that improve fertilizer efficiency. Herbicide products that enable minimum tillage, reducing both carbon emissions and diesel use. New crop varieties that enhance yield and are more stress-resilient. Natural biological inoculants. And innovative digital solutions.
